artfest charms



just finished these last night and thought i would share...................
i am in a 8person charm swap at artfest2007, it was a little tough for me to come up with something, why? ..i do not know, it just was, so i looked over some blogs that had some
charms for inspiration and lo and behold, someone had used the twinkle christmas lights.
my inspiration had been looking at me all along sitting on my tree....so, i pulled 8lights out, wrapped the tops with 24gauge wire, attached jump ring, took the word "enlighten" from
dictionary, printed it 8times, torn each word and lightly glued to lightbulb, then dipped each
one in my beeswax..i am quite pleased with them and hope the participants like them to...
i might even consider doing these with a different word on them for my artfest trades....xox

oh these are pretty cool. They will smell wonderful when warmed by the wearer's skin. You better do some extras for AF because I am going to want one. I need to get my arse in gear and working on my AF stuff including the Zine!! I need to write all my deadlines in my new calendar and get my charms for our swap out to you!
